Without no doubt Kacimi is one of the most famous Moroccan painter. Beyond the solitude of his studio in Rabat, Kacimi is a social figure committed the evolution of his country. This art book is the first monograph ever published on his works.
For Kacimi, being a nomad allows you to stop being just yourself within the limits of your solitude. A solitude still confronted with the colours of difference yet also with the similarity between human souls. And all this is painted, written, constructed like an image, like a poem whose only message is the representation of one's self to the world, through the fragility of a body itself committed to being a fragment of the world. A fragility that can be assassinated by the obscurity of those who hold the truths. Kacimi opens his body to this assassin.
